Pray and God will forgive you. With the help of Christ, you can start to forgive yourself.

Praying for Forgiveness

Forgiveness begins with a soul searching of our weaknesses, our mistakes, and ultimately of those that we have harmed through our actions and to whom we need to make amends. Through making amends, we humble ourselves before God, and only through humbling ourselves can we forgive ourselves for our past indiscretions. Although we make amends to the community, we free ourselves from the burdens of the past, and receive God into our heart.

Forgiveness and God's love gives us the strength to live one day at a time without drugs or alcohol.
